Believe us when we say that Start-Up is the newest Netflix K-drama worthy of your time and emotional investment! The show stars Nam Joo Hyuk and Bae Suzy and follows a heartwarming story of young millennials trying to figure out life, family, friendship, and pursuits of success.
Now, we're not just in it for Suzy and Joo Hyuk's giddy chemistry and emotional twists and turns—we're also taking style notes from the show! Aside from carrying cool designer bags, Suzy's character, Seo Dal-mi is a beacon of nonchalant style. We're looking at her myriad of easy tees-and-jeans pairings, collection of hoodies and blazers, and a bevy of practical footwear—yup, she's giving that worn out black pumps a rest!
Like Dal-mi, Nam Do-san (Nam Joo Hyuk) also opts for sensible outfits, as exemplified in his cozy assortment of hoodies and jeans. So, it's no surprise that the two millennials favor sneakers above all things. That said, we know you're curious, too, which pairs they both love.
In the early episodes of Start-Up, we spotted Dal-mi and Do-san twinning in comfy New Balance sneakers that we definitely want to cop, too! Check out how they both styled their sneaks below.
Nam Do-san wears a Steve Jobs-inspired outfit featuring thin-rimmed specs, black turtleneck, loose jeans, and dad trainers while filming for a cheeky company video.
Meanwhile, Dal-mi dons her chunky kicks to the hackathon event at Sandbox. Like Do-san, she wore a trusty pair of denim jeans, to go with her CEO tee and parka. She completed her laidback look with cute white New Balance sneakers, too.
